I got a visitor last night that I hadn’t seen for 30 years. 

Sian Lewis used to be at school with me, and delivered the Sunday Times to our house too 
I don’t think you could’ve imagined a more attractive paper girl. 
She drove miles – from Monmouth- to see me, cooked dinner, drank coffee, ok and a little wine, then drove the 4 hours home again. 
Thankfully for her, I don’t think I was too boring and we had a laugh and reminisced for a few hours about pretty much everyone we could remember. 
I think I told her quite a lot of stuff that she didn’t know about back then, thank God.. 
It was great to see Sian, as it is everyone who makes the trek to see me. 
I think I’m only there for another month. 
After that, normality, or what will become my new normality anyway… 
Scary thought. 
I would have been going skiing tomorrow, on the trip that I’ve ‘organised’ for the last 5 years or so.  
Most are still going on the trip, without me this time, and I hope they have a great time. 
I’ll miss being there though. You could say that I definitely skied the most and slept the least. 
Maybe next year?
